Best Immigrant Entrepreneur
Please tell us your personal story and about your business. How you started, and how you have overcome challenges.
We decided to make Canada our home in April 2013, when we got an opportunity to work in New Brunswick. Later we moved to Vancouver in November 2015. We had very humble beginnings with just 4 days of work (our 1st project) in the whole of 2016 under the brand name Orange Oranges Technologies. Also, it was pretty tough to zero down on the name so decided to go with a catchy name "Orange Oranges" as I & my partner were peeling oranges. After trying hard in 2016 &2017 we finally bagged our 2nd (1-month) project in 2017, it was pretty scary to leave my full-time job for just a 1-month project. Though we thought about this, gathered all our energy, & I left my full-time job. We knew "No pain no gain", as we just had our 1st angel turn 1 year old in 2017. So we knew it either we do now or maybe never. Now we had 2 babies one being my little daughter & the other being Orange Oranges Technologies. Lucky after this things turned out well as we thought, our 2nd project got extended and is still continuing as I fill in the details here. Though this wasn't really a small business, this was more like an independent 1-person contract, & I was determined to turn this into a business where we could generate employment for others as well contribute more to the economy. So in 2018, after another project extension, we gathered courage the 2nd time, & my partner Santoshi joined me quitting her full-time job at the City of Burnaby. This gave us more courage and belief in our self. Now it made it possible to think bigger & after a lot of trials & bids, we were able to bag a contract and hire an employee but the happiness did not last long. Our customer was able to convince our employee it is better to join them fulltime & this way we lost both our employee as well as our contract. This was our 1st real lesson in the world of business, nothing is certain. Also having a signed contract we could not compete with the huge organization, so we let it go. We decided it is not worth fighting it out rather we would focus on growing our customer base. This was a turning point & in the year 2018, we decided to build our brand identity, website, social media presence, join the Surrey Board of Trade. We knew without proper systems in place however good we may be, there will always be someone who can outsmart us. So we decided to build relationships, partnerships, and build brand identity by delivering the best we can, working all 7 days a week and all 24 hrs a day.
